Speedo & Clutch Cable Routing

While poking around my 86 Vulcan I noticed the speedometer and clutch cable housings get squished when making an extreme left turn. There are diagrams on bike-bandit and so forth that show one sub-system at a time, but I want to know how the speedo and clutch cables are actually routed throughout the bike in relation to the frame and other various parts. Anyone know of a resource for this info? Thanks in advance.

I don't know a source, but here's how mine are run-and please note, my previous owner(s) seem to be somewhat of a whack-job, and did some weird **** to mu bike, so I don't know if this is how it's supposed to be, but it works just fine:

Both cables start by tucking in between the headlight and gauges.

Clutch cable curves down and is clamped along the frame, (behind radiator cover) down along the bottom of the frame and up to the connection point.

The speedo cable bows out forward a bit from under the top triple clamp, then bends back behind the lower triple clamp, just across a small indent in the top of the radiator cover, then curves back out towards the front wheel.

Clear as mud?
